Jonathan Shearon has renounced his Slot and gives way to the British triathlete
This has been published by the triathlete on their social networks. There was a possibility to participate where it depended on a triathlete giving up his Slot and that is how it has happened, since Jonathan Seharon will not be in Hawaii leaving the participation to one of the most beloved triathletes of the international scene, Tim Don.
Last weekend was the last qualifying for Kona where Tim tried to qualify in the IRONMAN Copenhagen not finishing the test and staying awaiting some resignation
The road to recovery is rarely linear, the last 10 months have been all about perseverance. To get the first roll down spot was not in my vision, but life is funny like that? ♂️ ?. See you all in Kona. Thank you to all my sponsor, fans and well everyone out there willing me to get to @ironmantri Kona 2018 we did it ??? #trainhardraceeasy #nevergiveup #rolldown #ironman #wearestrongertogether? @jamesmitchell5
This is the updated KPR table (the letter Q is classified)
On the other hand Matt Russell, the athlete who also suffered a terrible motorcycle accident in Kona (DURING the race, when a car withdrew to the circuit), is now in the position to go to KOna since he was only 15 points behind Tim. If an athlete who has already accepted the slot is removed, Matt would be next in line to fill that position.
